Is Nipple Orgasm Real and How to Achieve it?

Sexual pleasure and satisfaction have always been topics of interest among individuals. One form of sexual pleasure that has drawn attention lately is nipple orgasms.

Misconceptions abound regarding the female breast, with a common belief that it serves only one purpose which is providing nutrition after childbirth. Research, however, suggested that, additionally to that, breasts can be considered in many individuals as erogenous zones and can contribute to sexual arousal and even orgasm.

Sexologists studied this topic and came to important discoveries regarding this particular area and its role in sexual pleasure.

What is nipple orgasm and is it real?

It has been demonstrated that after puberty, women undergo physical changes that result in heightened tactile sensitivity across all breast areas, including the nipples. This increase in sensitivity may clarify why some women are capable of achieving orgasm through nipple stimulation alone.

Research proved that a series of events and changes happen following nipple stimulation, such as:

  • Sexual arousal: Some women report that breast stimulation not only stimulates but also boosts sexual excitement when it’s already present.
  • Nipple erection:  The breast’s first response to sexual arousal is nipple erection. However, it can occur without being related with sexual stimulation in certain situations, such as when the nipples are exposed to cold.
  • Sex flush: In the late excitement phase, the inner surfaces of the breasts develop a spotted, red flush known as the ”sex flush,” which may spread over the entire breast. It is usually released during orgasm in some women.
  • Small increase in breast size: As arousal increases, there may be an increase in deep engorgement of blood vessels of the breasts, resulting in a slight and temporary augmentation of their actual size.
  • Hormones release: When the nipple and areola are stimulated, two primary hormones, oxytocin and prolactin, are released. Oxytocin causes the muscles in the breast and uterus to contract, resulting in a sensation of tension in both regions. It has been observed that this hormone can intensify orgasms and bring about sexual satisfaction. On the other hand, prolactin, when secreted during orgasm, can enhance nipple sensitivity. This may explain why women often feel their nipples are particularly sensitive after orgasm.
  • Orgasm: Studies have shown that while sexual arousal can be achieved through breast and nipple stimulation, experiencing orgasm solely from this type of stimulation is uncommon. Out of the 21 females who were studied, only 2 definitively reported having achieved orgasm from nipple stimulation. However, some sources claim that this number can be up to 25% of women.

Nipple stimulation seems to lead to sexual arousal or even orgasm in some women even in the absence of other sexual stimulations such as genital or visual stimulations. In fact, according to Kirsten von Sydow, a German psychologist who studied women’s sexuality, some mothers described breastfeeding as an erotic experience, while some of them voiced guilt due to the sexual excitement that they felt. Based on additional research, the arousal can occasionally be sufficiently intense to trigger an orgasm, which can drive some nursing moms to cease breastfeeding as a result of the sexual stimulation.

Can men also experience nipple orgasms?

The male and female breast/nipple complex develop from the same fetal tissue and has been demonstrated to have connections to the sexual brain as well.

On the matter of male sexuality, men tend to overlook the nipples as erogenous zones. Some research however confirmed that in the majority of males, this part of their body becomes turgid if not erect after sexual stimulation or excitement due to its dense innervation that is connected to the part of the brain that controls sexual responses.

Additionally, men’s nipple stimulation, similar to women’s, results in the secretion of two hormones: oxytocin and prolactin; both of these hormones have an influence on sexual arousal as mentioned above.

What does a nipple orgasm feel like?

Imaging of the brain (Functional MRI) has clearly demonstrated that nipple stimulation activates regions of the brain that overlap with regions activated by clitoral, vaginal, or cervical self-stimulation. Therefore, the experience of a nipple orgasm can be similar to that of a clitorial or vaginal orgasm, characterized by intense pleasure, a rush of ecstasy, euphoria and a release of tension.

How to achieve it?

Experiencing nipple orgasm requires the stimulation of the nipple areas. This can be done through a variety of methods such as:

  • Touch stimulations: Caressing, pinching, or pulling the nipples; preferences on the sort of feeling are likely to vary from one person to another.
  • Mouth stimulations: Kissing, sucking or licking the nipples…
  • Using other body parts: touching nipples with the genital parts (i.e penis)
  • Using sex toys: either during masturbation or partnered sex (i.e. stimulating the nipples with a vibrator).

It may take time and practice to finally achieve a nipple orgasm, so individuals must communicate, be patient and experiment to find out what works best for them and/or their partners.

What can influence nipple orgasms and can everybody experience it?

The likelihood of experiencing nipple orgasms and their intensity vary depending on a number of factors, including but not limited to:

  • Education level: Dr. Alfred Kinsey, an American sexologist, noted a correlation between breast and nipple stimulation and the education level of men. He claims that males with a higher level of education considered that, since female breasts interest them sexually, it was natural for them to manipulate these parts, both by hand and by mouth as a part of their sexual interactions or foreplays. On the other hand, those with lower levels perceived such mouth-breast behaviors as perversions or even disgusting habits that are exclusive to breastfeeding infants.
  • Breast size: Research found that large breasts are less sensitive than small breasts. The cause isn’t thoroughly determined.
  • Psychological factors: It has been hypothesized that people’s mental state affected their ability to experience nipple orgasms. However, not much research has been done on this claim.
  • Type and intensity of the simulation: Some people respond easily to light touch and delicate caresses, while others require more intense stimulations such as pinching or sucking.
